Terry Snyder - Persuasive Provocative Percussion

Hi there. Today's post features one of the greats of Space-Age-Pop - Terry Snyder. This album is an Australian package featuring a selection of tracks from his albums. The cover completely fails to encapsulate the nature of the music. As a percussionist, Snyder led ensembles that were akin to chamber music groups - lots of orchestral percussion plus the obligatory bongos.

Terry is joined byTony Mottola on guitar, Dick Hyman on organ, Dominic Cortese on accordian, plus a bunch of other names from the Command stable. Light, delicate textures, but with that swing and groove that makes all the difference.
